Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Muscat, Oman. There were always limited career options in the country and I went for accounting as it seemed the most feasible. However, my passion has always been reading and putting my thoughts on paper to share with others. The influence stems from pretty much anything that gets me thinking and I end up lost in my thoughts eager to write them down.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing at 16. My sister was my motivation as seeing her write made me want to follow suit. I began writing on wattpad.
Nick is a happy go lucky self proclaimed charmer who has never given a thought to much of anything. Emily is a responsible yet unsure person who can't help herself from thinking every second. Two people who seemingly couldn't be any more different from one another happen to meet. What starts off as a clash of personalities turns into mutual respect, and eventually friendship blossoming into love.
